D2N2 is delighted to be investing £850,000 into the University of Derby’s Facility for OMICS Research in Metabolism (FORM), of which £425,00o is from our Local Growth Fund.
The £1.75 million facility will focus on the effect that foods, vitamins, supplements, and drugs have on the human body, supporting the education of 800 highly skilled learners as well as providing over 20 jobs.
The objective of FORM is to improve the health outcomes of people through a better understanding of how these agents can improve metabolic conditions and treat diseases.
The facility will also bring new capabilities, capacities, and collaborations into D2N2 further advancing the reputation of the region as a hub for innovation in the understanding and treatment of human diseases.
The facility is due to be completed by April 2021 and will welcome its first learners in September 2021.
